1 Preheat slow cooker and turn to low. In a large bowl combine pork, green part of spring onions, carrot, vegetables, miso, chilli paste, coriander and chilli. Mix together well using clean hands. Form into 25 evenly-sized balls.
2 If your slow cooker has a ‘saute’ function, use it to brown garlic and ginger in oil for 1 minute. Alternatively, brown garlic and ginger in oil in a non-stick pan then return to slow cooker. Add tomatoes and chicken stock. Mix to combine then place meatballs evenly inside slow cooker.
3 Cook in slow cooker on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 3 hours. Serve meatballs over noodles with silver beet or spinach.
